Hepatitis Quality of Life Questionnaire™ (HQLQv2™)
The Hepatitis Quality of Life Questionnaire™ Version 2 (HQLQv2™) is a two-part survey constructed to assess the functional health and well-being of patients with chronic hepatitis C. It includes the SF-36v2® Health Survey and 15 additional questions that measure other generic health concepts particularly relevant in assessing the impact of hepatitis (e.g. health distress, positive well-being) and disease-specific concepts (e.g. hepatitis-specific functional limitations, hepatitis-specific distress).
The HQLQv2™ was designed to help patients and clinicians monitor the effects of hepatitis C and its treatment. Useful both for screening and for monitoring changes in disease impact, the HQLQv2™ is available in a fixed form or interview (telephone/face-to-face) format. It can be administered in clinical settings, at home or in other locations. The HQLQv2™ is intended for adults 18 years of age and older and is available in multiple language translations with a standard four-week recall period.
